Hey everybody! I'm back today with something completely different. I'm guest designer for this week's challenge at The Octopode Factory Challenge Blog and needless to say, I am BEYOND thrilled! If you're not familiar with these images, I suggest you get familiar immediately by heading to Lily Chilver's blog and taking a long look around. These designs are the real deal and have everything you are looking for...Lily combines a smidge of whimsy, a dollop of edgy, and a heaping scoop of quirk to come up with some of the most unique designs I have seen in a very long time. I just love them! Even my mom has caught Octopode Fever and has her eye on some of these fab digi sets.
Lily designs these images herself and really blows me away with her imaginative interpretations of popular and not-so-popular characters. When was the last time you tripped across a set of images devoted to David Bowie or Charlie Chaplin? I rest my case.
Today I chose to work with images from the Edgar Allen Poe set. Just look at that Tell Tale Heart! It begs to be used in a project! I combined it with Annabel Lee and Edgar, himself. The whole set is amazing and I have already starting coloring up some of the other images to use on another card. Visit Lily's Etsy store to view all of the wonderful designs available. I can tell that my credit card and I are going to be hanging out there quite often...lol!
This week's challenge at The Octopode Factory Challenge Blog is Spots and Dots, so put your dotty thinking cap on and get cracking on those spotty projects and join the fun. We can't wait to see what you create!
